Forcible Entry

House Bill Number: 
297

House Bill 297 would allow proceedings for forcible entry or detainer to include claims for damages and back rent.

Bill Sponsor(s): 
Rep. J. Petrie

The Forcible Entry and Detainer process is an expedited process to get possession of real estate. This bill adds getting money from renters to that process.

Presently, there are processes for monetary judgements between landlords and tenants. Those processes include the ability for renters to respond and file counter claims. This bill would remove these normal processes.
